Banana Upsidedown Cake Recipe @pinch

Yum, yum, yum! This banana upside havedown cake is fantastic. Enjoy warm and cold... It is delicious both ways. Bananas are the star of this dessert. The banana flavor from the cake mix and the warm caramelized bananas on top are divine. We love the flavor cherries add. They are sweet but not overly sweet and pair well with the banana flavor. I tried this first in a cast iron Dutch oven, and because not everyone has that type of pot, I converted it to a more common cake pan. If you bake this in a Dutch (camp) oven, use 2 cake mix boxes.
